Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $35

I am a seasoned professional who has almost 23 years of print design experience, 17 years designing and coding for the web and I started working with Flash about 15 years ago. I hand-code HTML and CSS and am expert-level with almost all of the Adobe CS applications.

As a freelancer, I've had the opportunity to oversee many projects in which I worked both as designer and art director. These were projects in which I was solely responsible for strict adherence to corporate guidelines, image selection, print sourcing and production, and press...

Service Description

My extensive background in the healthcare field and with not-for-profits gives me invaluable insight into these, and many other, areas. Many of my clients have been Fortune 500 corporations, others were nationally-renowned non-profit organizations.

I began my career overseeing a Los Angeles-based fashion magazine as well as a swimwear catalog. That experience allowed me first-hand knowledge of high-end press and pre-press technology. I was also able to hone my branding, advertising, and writing and editing skills on these projects.

Since then I've worked with film studios, ad agencies, tech firms, musicians, award-winning designers, and top banking institutions—winning an award for a website I did for UBOC, covering the launch of the Euro.

I've been involved with or been solely responsible for a wide range of projects, and worked for and with a number of fantastic, interesting, and impressive clients, experience that has given me incredibly valuable knowledge.
